Ashra nta: Towards survey of astronomical tau neutrino sources

ASHRA NTA COLLABORATION

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The conceptual layout for Ashra Neutrino Telescope Array (Ashra NTA) has three site stations forming a 25 km triangle watching the total air mass surrounded by Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Hualalai, and a single site station at the center with full-sky coverage. Tremendous sensitivity (equivalent to > 100 km3 water) can be achieved with Cherenkov-fluorescence stereoscopic observation for PeV-EeV neutrinos in largely background-free conditions. With demonstrated fine imaging by Ashra-1 of Earth-skimming tau showers, a new collaboration, aimed at clear discovery and identification of astronomical tau neutrino sources, is forming.
